Response to Question!

Just remember that Can Loan was a particular scheme and plenty of Canadian's joined the British Army prior to, and during WW2 outside of Can Loan. As I have stated before on the forum, a few of Britains first commandos were Canadians and a few of them were part of the first British paratroops trained at Ringway. There were Canadians in Royal Marine Commando as well as other British special units that were not part of Can Loan. Many were Canadian citizens living in Britain at the outbreak of the war. Unfortunately there are no lists of these men outside those that I have run into in my research.
